A Tour of Mew Lake Yurts – Algonquin Provincial Park

I’ve had the incredible pleasure of staying a few times in Algonquin’s yurts – have you ever wondered what they look like inside?

Yurt Features:

  • Covered BBQ area (seasonal)
  • Electrical outlet(s) – bring an extension cord
  • Plastic Tray for boots
  • Broom and dust pan
  • (Cold) wood floors – bring slippers
  • Hook to hang clothes and wet coats

Yurt 39

This particular yurt was not in operation during my visit, as evidenced by the lack of patio furniture.

See Yurt 40 below for comparison.

Yurt 40

Yurt 39 and 40 differ from 34, 36, 38, 49, 54, and 62 by having a propane fireplace instead of electric heat. There are no panel windows, only glass in the double front door and single back door, and there are skylights.

The interior construction and furniture are rustic in appearance.

Yurts 39 and 40 have a wood dining table with four chairs and rustic wood furniture outdoors

Both 39 and 40 have raised wood platforms and a ramp for accessibility.

Yurt 54 – very similiar to 34, 36, 38, and 62.

Yurt 34, 36, 38, 54, and 62 have one small plastic table and four stackable chairs, plus a picnic table outside near the fire pit.

34, 36, 38 and 54 have direct trail access to vault toilets.

Yurts 54 and 62 have a ramp leading to the front door.

Yurts 34, 36 and 38 have a low step-up platform leading to the front door.

62 is dog-friendly.
